Funny, because I was just driving back from New York with two passengers, both of whom were reading their books with flashlights after the sun went down.
Lots of reading gets done after dark. Ink and e-ink are better when you're reading in direct sunlight, but OLED is better when you aren't. I would say that high resolution is more important for preserving eyesight. Low resolution text, whether aliased or obviously anti-aliased, is at least as much of a problem.
Based on my own owlish reading habits, I'd prefer OLED.
